I have always loved the look of parchment craft, but thought it would be too difficult to learn, and there are oh, so many tools! It is more time consuming than most other techniques, but it's not nearly as hard as I thought. If you've ever done dry embossing then you're part of the way there. As far as the tools go, I started out with just a white gel pen, an embossing tool, a needle and a craft foam pad.
